Eleven Juveniles Clash in Bashford Manor

SUM OF THE PARTS (Speightstown), a convincing winner in his lone career start, heads a field of 11 two-year-olds in Saturday's 110th running of the $100,000 Bashford Manor S. (G3) at Churchill Downs. The six-furlong race, the first graded stakes race of the year for two-year-olds, is scheduled as the 12th and featured event on a special 13-race program on the closing weekend of the historic track's 38-day spring meet.

The Bashford Manor, which was first run in 1902, is named in honor of the prominent Louisville Thoroughbred breeding farm owned by George James Long, who bred three winners of the Kentucky Derby on the property. The farm bred and raced Derby winners Azra (1892) and Sir Huon (1906) and bred 1899 winner Manuel. Bashford Manor also owned Kentucky Oaks winners Selika (1894) and Kathleen (1916).

The Tom Amoss-trained Sum of the Parts turned heads early in the meet with a flashy 2 3/4-length victory as the favorite in his 4 1/2-furlong racing debut on May 14. That is the lone start for the colt that is bidding to join Lone Star Sky (2002) and Backtalk (2009) as Bashford Manor winners saddled by Amoss.
